Samantha Cook By SMC_Scookie Completed

Inspired by her father, 16-year-old Ruby never misses an opportunity to challenge her village's ridiculous rules. Her friends and brothers try to dissuade her hot-headed methods, but Ruby can't help it. She doesn't believe Seers should determine the fate of individuals before a crime is committed, and she doesn't back down, not even when the Seers banish her father into the deadly forest.
 
When Ruby spots survivors beyond the gates, she breaks every rule to save them. She lands the same fate as her father, only to be saved by a psychic instead of banished. But why would a Seer protect a troublesome girl? 

With the village out to get her, Ruby pulls one last stunt that destroys the lives of everyone she has ever known, and to her horror, Ruby learns the dark and twisted truth behind why the psychic saved her.

Sounds like Romeo and Juliet she has to say yes if she has her parent support

It's really sad to think that in the real world, we as a globe have come so far but in this reality it's going backwards 😔

The second Jacob said mate, I started to read this in an English accent lol...
                              
                              Hold on? So he'll basically be forced on her if he wants her? 
                              
                              Ruby's character is very well developed. I don't really have much to say about this chapter, it was good!

                              Is it bad that part of the reason it caught my eyes is that my name is Ruby

That makes absolutely no sense that she has to say yes if he asks her

They were probably born infertile but that's a good question
